For those seeking advice:I get loads of people asking me how to prepare for a job or get started in the design and visualization business and / or what schools to attend. I wish I could be more helpful.For those seeking advice:2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Something you need to understand is that I'm almost 51 years old. So, I have no contemporary schooling advice. All my formal schooling (late 70's early 80's) was completed well before PC's and digital art. I began my career with traditional media and all my digital skills are self taught. Therefore, I really have no idea in 2012, what the great digital art and design schools are and what the best path is for a young person interested in the trade. I'm not being a jerk, it's just that I'm not seeking a entry level job or looking for classes.
I will say that in this biz, it's more important what you can DO -vs- where you went to school. You can complete a curriculum and not learn a thing, and you can learn loads outside of a classroom. A strong portfolio speaks volumes. There are 15 year old

That's right, it's a one-shot, single-frame photo contest, and this time around, it's all about signs. What is this madness you ask? Read on to find out.
All Signs Point to Robitz
Everywhere you go, every day of your life, there are signs all around you. Yes that's right: regular old signs. Stop signs, exit signs, business signs, street signs, you name it; they're everywhere. In fact, unless you're standing in the middle of a remote cow field somewhere, chances are that you can't even escape being surrounded by signs, and let's face it, even out in the middle of nowhere, there's probably a

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

Hmmm... Interesting.So this morning I receive notification from a no-reply administrative account here at dA than one of my deviations has been removed in response to a DMCA copyright violation claim.Hmmm... Interesting.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The artwork in dispute was amusingly enough my very first auto vexeI uploaded back in 2004. A very cartoony Orange Acura RSX, based partly on a die cast toy that I took my own photograph of. The resulting art looks very little like the toy car to begin with, and was produced by a toy manufacturer that seems to be no longer in business much less offering the product for sale.
So who's the entity with the beef? Honestly, I have no idea. They're not identified in the complaint at all. The defunct toy-maker? Acura? Jeez, I've no idea. Either way, it seems that 9 years after the fact, someone is zealously defending a design that neither of them fucking make any more.
The recourse is to dispute the claim, but the process of dispute puts all the onus on me. The process states: "Under the Digital Millennium Copyrigh
Guide to Get Llamas and Other BadgesI'm going to be making a list of how to get each of badges. It might take a while, but here's a start.Guide to Get Llamas and Other Badges4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Llamas: Get other dA members to go to your profile page, then click "Give" in the top right corner, then "Give Llama." For the most part, when you give someone a llama, they will give you one back.
Tinfoil Hat Badge: Click here: http://news.deviantart.com/article/75898/ . Then click "Pre-Order Now." The badge should be on your profile.
Blind to Pageviews: On your profile go to "Edit Settings." Then go to "Browsing." Then unclick the box that says, "See Pageviews." You have to keep the box unclicked to keep the badge on your profile.

extended because people asked for it uwu
i love contests and character designs but since i have a lot of characters already how about designing versions of misty!
For this contest I've chosen to do a 'despair' version of my fursona Misty
now you can change the colours and accessories of course but id like misty to be recognisable. I don't want gorey things but rather original designs. Go crazy! I love original character designs!
definition of despair:
the complete loss or absence of hope
Just remember this is a design contest and not a drawing contest, so a despair version of misty, not misty in despair if that makes sense.
so yeah rules
- no using lineart
- make it recognisable
- not much

I decided to up the ante this week and do a PM giveaway too Each month, I will try to give out 2 or more memberships to people! Read the thumb for more info. All big things start small, so this time it'll only be a 1 month membership. But next time, I hope i can make it a 3 month one! Or just give out 2 1-month ones.
